Don’t use ! in Camtasia Studio recorder document names!

If you use an exclamation in the file name you will find that the camrec file is white and empty when imported into Camtasia Studio and if you check the properties it will say “No camera stream detected”.

The solution to the problem is to remove ! from the file name.


  1. Hi - We tested out using "!" in file names this AM and it worked for us - http://screencast.com/t/S6sN5J9i

    So, there might be something else going on? Here's an article on http://techsmith.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/techsmith.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=460&p_created=1141144398

    If you have more problems with this, feel free to let me know or contact tech support (it's free at TechSmith).

    Any other feedback? Thanks for using Camtasia Studio - I appreciate it!

  2. Betsy, I run into this on Windows Vista. What OS have you tried this on?
